Masha Reva is a Ukrainian-born designer who migrated to the UK in 2010 to complete two short courses in Fashion Marketing and Creating New Concepts in Fashion at Central Saint Martins in London. Shortly after completing her courses, Reva created quite the buzz on in fashion industry, and has since been involved in numerous collaborations and shows.
Reva’s work is completely unique, stemming many ideas from her surroundings and being described as ‘tip-toeing between fashion and art’. Her designs are not for the conservative or for the colour-shy – You have to be bold and confident to wear something so flamboyant and artistic. Recently, Reva was asked by Kiev/London-based clothing company, Syndicate, to collaborate with on designing a limited range of sweatshirts, which are available in six different designs, called “Botanical Layers”. Reva explains the collaboration as, “A juxtaposition of immersion in the rapid pace of contemporary life, gadgets, and social networks with a yearning for our natural environment, explored as a metaphorical botanical garden of Photoshop layers and loading bars.”
This designer is definitely one to be on the lookout for, especially in early 2013. Who knows what will derive next from this talented artist!
